Employment law debate

Lanark and Hamilton East MP Angela Crawley will lead a debate on the merits of devolving employment law to Scotland. 

The debate follows the UK Government’s decision not to commit to an Employment Bill in this year’s Queen’s speech. 

Devolving employment law to Scotland would allow the Scottish Government to protect and enhance workers’ rights as well as beginning to tackle in work poverty.

The debate will take place in Westminster Hall on Tuesday 6th September at 2:30pm. The public can watch the proceedings through Parliament TV. 

Commenting, Lanark and Hamilton East MP Angela Crawley MP said:

“Full devolution of employment law would allow Scotland to go even further and create fairer workplaces, increase wages, reduce insecure work and fundamentally, tackle in work poverty head on.”
